Meet sweet adoptable deaf dog Cullen who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish him, be his new best friend, teach him new things and always keep him safe.

From a shelter volunteer: I volunteer at my local animal shelter and one of the wonderful dogs there is Cullen. He is, best guess, a Labrador mix and he’s about 2 years old, maybe younger. He came in as a stray to our local animal control facility and the shelter I volunteer with pulled him. I currently have two deaf dogs and I know the love these dogs can give when given the chance. So, I wanted to give him the best chance at finding his furever family by teaching him some basic sign commands.

Cullen knows sit, drop it, lay down and wait. Since I started working with him, he’s learned very quickly. With his attitude, there’s no limit to what he could learn. He’s eager to please and treat motivated. He is an athletic boy that really enjoys a good game of playing fetch. Especially Frisbee. But that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t know how to snuggle.

Cullen can become a bit rambunctious and excited to play, but we are a small rural shelter and he doesn’t have the benefit of being in a foster home where he can totally decompress. He does well with the other dogs at the shelter and he would probably enjoy a home with a fur sibling. But even if he was the only dog, he would enjoy that also. He would do best in a home with older kids.
